The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, is a beauty. Bigger-boned and framed than many 2014s, with more structure, this is classic Oakville material, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet kiss of graphite, blackcurrants, Christmas fruitcake and spice box. Full-bodied and opulent, with moderate tannin, this is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 20 or more years.

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is another super-appealing wine. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice, new leather and licorice wrap around the palate. Succulent, layered and juicy, the 2014 captures all of the appeal of this Oakville site, albeit in the more restrained style that is typical of the year. -- Antonio Galloni 94 vinous
